As I mentioned in my last post, I volunteer on Engineer Nova Scotia’s Board of Examineers. I’ve also done the odd visit on an accreditation team for the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.

Last weekend I was part of the team that visited UBC’s Okanagan campus and had a look at their new engineering programs. It’s an incredible amount of work, but I’m continuously amazed at the quality of the team on one of these visits. The staff and faculty at UBC Okanagan were extremely helpful and enthusiastic.

It sort of makes me wonder if engineers that get involved with their community and education are normally this good. It sure makes me hopeful that the profession will continue to improve and set high standards.

That can’t be anything but good for the future of public safety and breakthroughs in applied technology.

Viva la Engineer! :-)
